Fashion and Postcolonial Critique

 - Fashion and Postcolonial Critique
A critical global fashion theory from a postcolonial perspective.
Fashion and Postcolonial Critique investigates contemporary articulations of postcolonial fashion critique, and analyzes fashion as a cultural, historical, social, and political phenomenon involved in and affected by histories of colonial domination, anti-colonial resistance, and processes of decolonization and globalization. Stemming from a range of different disciplines, such as art history, textile studies, anthropology, history, literary studies, cultural studies, sociology, fashion media, and fashion theory, the contributions in this book reflect the multidisciplinary and diverse nature of postcolonial fashion research today.
Edited by Elke Gaugele and Monica Titton.
